Bench press - Most ever: 455, Now: prob about 385
Dumbell bench - can do 120 x 10
Curl bar curls - ?
Hammer Curls (dumbell) - ?
Straight bar curls - ? I never really pay attention to the weight on curls, just do what feels right
Tricep pushdowns - depends on which stack i'm using
Deadlifts - have done 495 x 10 before, can do it 4 or 5 now
Squats - did 505 x 8 before, going lighter now for knee
Leg press - ? as much as our machine would hold
Back pull downs - usually stick with about 200 or 210 x 10
Cable rows (back) - ? use a hammer strength row machine most of the time. I can do several reps loaded with five 45's each side

Deadlifts: Stiff deads 322 @ 5

Well... you can pretty much take everybody's digits and multiply that by .2 - .25 and then take the product and subtract that from the original number Since I'm not macho and I'm not into untamed movements I'll be honest about what I do. Whatever.
Incline Dumbell Press: 100lbs each arm, 10-12 times with a good negative and explosive concentric. Some days I can only or will only do 80-85s if my shoulders are beaten.
Overhead bar shoulder press (standing) - I will just man handle 175 for 10 reps and envision the weight being a corpse.
Dumbell shoulder press - 85 lbs each arm for 10-12 reps. Yes, my shoulders are as strong as my chest almost. Whatever.
Squats - Every so often I do squats I'll just load 225 on the bar and crank out 20 reps straight through for a couple sets with virtually perfect precision.
Power cleans - Once in a while I'll do these first to maintain good strength and form at this explosive, awesome, compound movement. I will clean 185 lbs for 10 reps with great tempo and precision.
Curls? - My biceps are too big as it is. I don't do these.
Freedom means nothing here.
